Jets: Suit by Massage Therapists 'Without Merit'
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets say a lawsuit filed against them and Brett Favre by two massage therapists is "completely without merit," and the team had not been aware of the accusations.

Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole contend they were subjected to sexual harassment and job discrimination. They are seeking unspecified damages from Favre, the Jets and a team massage coordinator in a lawsuit filed Monday.

They say they lost their part-time jobs with the Jets after complaining about sexually suggestive text messages from the veteran quarterback while he was with the team in 2008.

In a statement Tuesday, the Jets say they are looking forward to defending themselves in court.
